Guard Sean Kilpatrick scored 31 of his career-high 38 points after the third quarter to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 16-point fourth-quarter comeback and 127-122 double-overtime win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday at Barclays Center.
The Nets trailed 89-73 when Kilpatrick scored 20 points, including 12 straight for Brooklyn, during a 26-10 run that tied the game at 99.
"I ended getting into a zone,'' Kilpatrick said, according to the New York Post's Brian Lewis. "At that point there was no turning back for me."
He scored six points in the first overtime and five more in the second overtime, including a three-point play with 13 seconds left that turned a 124-122 lead into a two-possession game.
Kilpatrick's previous career high was 26 points, which he scored in a road loss to the Indiana Pacers last April. He became the first Net to score 20 points in the fourth quarter since Devin Harris on Nov. 30, 2008, according to ESPN.
The 26-year-old Kilpatrick, who also recorded 14 rebounds for his first double-double of the season, helped end Brooklyn's seven-game losing streak, which began with a 32-point road loss to the Clippers on Nov. 14.
"When we went to L.A.," Kilpatrick said, "they got us bad and that was really something that stuck in our minds. … To grab a win like that against a top team is huge."
